I'm thrilled to announce that as a part of this OPA (Oil Painters of America) event in Petosky, MI at the Crooked Tree Arts Center, I will be conducting a 4 day Plein Air Painting Workshop!
This will be a chance to paint this beautiful part of Michigans' west coast shoreline and surrounding landscape. If you've never been there, be prepared for an amazing beauty that will surprise you. Overlooking the shores of Lake Michigan's Little Traverse Bay in the northern tip of Michigan's Lower Peninsula you'll find Petoskey Michigan, a quaint resort community with unmatched beauty and charm. Petoskey has been a destination for resorters for more than 100-years and for multiple generations. People return to soak in the rich views, breathe the clean air, eat at world-class restaurants and shop in the specialty shops and boutiques of its historic downtown.
We'll spend the four days painting the area. I'll be incorporating several different exercises during the workshop to help you with many of the basics of painting... Concept, Value, Color, and Drawing. That along, with my own daily demonstrating to show you what I expect of you each day, and a lot of one on one easel critique and support, should make the days spent together an educational and enjoyable time painting the area.
This workshop is geared towards painters who've had some experience. The Crooked Tree Arts Center has suggestions for classes for artists who are new to Plein Air painting. Please visit the website for more information. Supply lists and other info available through the Crooked Tree Arts Center... .
I hope to see you there.
